THE FARM. THE USE OF THE DISO HARROW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SEED BED [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE F ft R 8/1 . THE USB OF THE DISO HARBOW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SEED BED On the best use of the disc harrow, the "Canadian Thrc-sherman" sayts What tho self-binder means in the provinco of harvesting machinery, it is safo to say the disc harrow has become among cultivating tools. Generally speaking, a deep seed bed is an absolute necessity to the pro tection of the crop in a dry season, but it is not expedient to plough deeply on certain soils. If the subsoil is sand or gravel and is very near the surface, ploughing to a depth that will bring that siibsoil to the surface is not to be thought of. It is also known that the humus on new land does not, as a rule, extend to, beyond three or four inches below the. sur face, that depth should be observed at the outset, but each succeeding year the depth should be increased until the subsoil is eight or ten inches deep. It has been well said that "the seed bed is the plant's larder, and it ; should be deep and roomy." It is the main feeding...

A QUESTION OF COW VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A QUESTION OF COW VALUES. i Fortunate indeed is the dairyman ; who owns n good cow and knows it. | Likewise fortunate is he who owns a | poor 011c and knows it. and has sense enough to send her to the block ra j ther than seil her to his brother j dairyman for a boarder. The good cow of the real dairyman j have records and usually are not for I sale. It is the dairyman who cousi | &lt;3ers it too much bother to make a ! record who needs to learn something , about cow ralues. i Is it not true that more times than one we have owned cows which we ; thought were lust ordinary indivi duals and which we were induced by the dealer to sell at a low price, but , later we had discovered that we sold , the "goose that, laid the golden |egg"? Then again, have we not owned cows which because of their large i milk flow at freshening time we have i held on to with the tenacity of a ! bull dog, but which always stands : dry a good while ?

THE DAIRY MILK PRODUCTION. QUANTITY AND QUALITY-EX HAUSTIVE INVESTIGATIONS. A great deal has been heard of late of various phases of the question of the milk standard and the basic causes of the variations in the qua lity of milk. A very exhaustive con tribution to this subject is contained in a book on "Feeding of Crops and Stock,", by Dr. A. D. Hall, director of the famous Rothamsted Agricul tural Experiment Station in Eng land, which ha? been in existence since 1843. This able work contains a chapter on "Milk, Butter, and Cheese," whi:h deals with a great many questions connected with the production of milk, butter, and cheese, and the results of the experi ments in the variations in composi tion of milk are particularly inter esting. AVERAGE COMPOSITION OF MILK As a result of about 200,000 an- j alyses, the a-"rage composition of j milk, for instate, was found to be : -Fat, 3.9 per cent. ; protein, 3.5 ; lactose, -1.75 ; ash, .75 ; and water, S7.1.

Gymbowen Notes [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Gymbovven Notes (From our Correspondent) Although the local branch of the Mitre Lake Kifle Club, ha-, for some considerable time, been proclaimed an independent club, there has been some . delay in getting the range passed. Consequently rifle practise had been held up until last week ; and as members have to complete their musketry course within a few days, there has been considerable activity on the range of lats. Lass Saturday shooting was commenced early in the morning and had one happened to visit the range about noon he would probably have found some of our marksmen sitting around the camp fire cleaning their rifles while the. billy boiled. Shooting will be continued during the week, and ar.y members who have not preriously completed their musketry course are requested to be present next Saturday It is anticipated that a bra'.ch of tte Gymbowen club will be formed afc Nurcoung . .
EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
EYEBROWS. * Eye-brows that are lighter in col our than the hair are usually a sign of weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair generally go with a vigorous mind ana boay, more especially when they are bushy and tufted. As a general rule the closer" the eyebrows lie to the eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as sociated with a suspicious nature. Well-arched eyebrows are a sign of j artistic, agreeable temperament, but i when they lie far away from the eyes j the owner is often most unreliable. j If the eyebrows, instead of droop- j ing at the end, turn upwards to- &lt; wards the temples, their possessor is j likely to have a strong sense of hu-t mour, and is likely, to make a name j as a comedian, or as a . humorous i artist or writer. From time immemorial, eyebrows that meet across the nose have been associated with a passionate and even a murderous temperament. Persons with little or no eyebrows are almost invariab...
COMPLETE SHORT STORY. THE FATE OF GENERAL VALIXTO. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
0OMPLBTB SHORT ST©RY. THE FATE OF GENERAL VALIXTO. - ?? ? ? -A - - -v General Valixto oat in his room, busy with his papers. There were stirring times ahead, for .within twenty-four hours the insurgents un der his and Gen. Palmero's command were to make a combined attack on Havana. Already the men were pre paring for the fray, and ever and anon the trampling of horses' feet and the shrill notes of the bugle fill ed the air. One or two unimportant places had already been taken, but that was a mere bagatelle compared to the capture of Havana. Here the Spaniards were gathered in force, ready to make a determined stand against the enemy, and General Val ixto realised that the task which lay before him was no light one. He paused in his work for a mo ment, and, taking up a small pack age, tied round with a coloured rib bon, he deftly, undid its folds, and took) therefrom a small photo. On this he gazed fervently for a moment his naturally bright eyes growing brighter as they scanned the ...
A New invention. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A flew invention. JL A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire less long-distance mirror. Its pur pose, in brief, is to convey an image in the same manner that sounds are now communicated. It is a j-adical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a structure in which the real image of an ob ject is projected upon a white table or other plane surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mirror all objects located and all happenings occurring within a much greater area than the camera obscura, but it operates at night. Just how the machine works has not jet been revealed, but it is known to consist of 'a v.-eh of wires attached to a tall mast, and it is this web which" receives the impressions and projects them on to the mirror located at the base of the mast. The principal value of the now ap paratus will bo in its application to ships. It is expected to prevent collisions with other ships, ice bergs, or derelicts by disclosing- the thereabouts...

Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Glaciers and Icebergs. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly ; but how many know how they are formed ? When snow falls in the lower re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience of young folks in the thea tre of the lloyal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it does "not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So the layers of snow are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche ; but on a high table land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the es sential feature in the .glacier. First the grains of ice :are 110 bigger than a' pin's head ; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger and bigger, and the large ones absorb tho smaller. The ...
Prearranged "Heroism." [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Prearranged "Heroism." Yearners after notoriety have adopted as vehicles for the attain ing of their ends visits to lions' dens, rescue from drowning of per sons paid to fall in tho water, carefully-rehearsed struggles with imaginary burglars, arrest of run away horses hired for the occasion, and many like expedients. To what extremes folk afflicted with a mania for such popularity will go is well instanced by the case of a young lady of good fam ily, who complained of being con tinually followed by a tall, dark stranger when out alone. Letters and postcards couched in the most affectionate terms were always ar riving at her father's home, and a reward of one hundred pounds v'as offered for the discovery of the sen der. The matter was discussed in the papers, and soon along came a still more piquant item. An at tempt had been made to steal the young lady altogether ! Public in terest was by this time aroused ; and there is no knowing what fur ther adventures might have hap pened to ...
A NOVEL RAT TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A NOVEL RAT TRAP. A boy, while playing1 in the yard close to a grain house, dug a hole and buried an old-fashioned fruit jug or jar that his mother had throwh away, says the " Iowa Homestead." The top part of the jug was left uncovered as shown in the sketch, and a hole was broken in it just above the ground. The boy then placed some shelled corn in the bottom, put a board on top, and weighted it with a heavy stone. The jug had been forgotten for several days when a farmer found it, and, wondering what it was, ho raised the board and found nine full-grown rats and four iiniee in the bottom. The trap has been in use for some time and is opened every day or two and never fails to have from one to six rats or mice in it. Frost-bitten vegetables should be soaUed in cold water for one hour before boiling. A piece of salt petre should lie added to the water in which they are cooked.
